  • Got a dog with problems? I’ve got solutions. I use smart, force-free methods and get results quickly. Enjoy a Home Visit in the comfort of your dog’s own environment. I’ll observe your pet, listen to his story to find out ‘what makes him tick’ and then get started with solutions. All sessions have free follow up, by email and/or text, for one month.

    My Ph.D is in Dog Behavior. (See my resume on the About Me page) Add my Ph. D to thirty-eight years teaching dogs and people in Orange County and you get an experienced, effective behaviorist. I don’t use harsh methods.  I do use creative, effective ideas and techniques. I  design help to fit you and your pet; my solutions are not ‘canned’ or pre-written.

    If you tried training classes, ‘boot camp’,  doggie drugs or other trainers  give my approach a chance. You'll like my manner with both ends of the leash. The fee and length of Home Visits vary. 

    Please contact me and tell me about your pet and we'll get those problems solved.
